PR Bodypainting: Sony Ericsson

By | Behind the Scene, Bodypainting, Celebrity, Uncatagorized | 3 Comments

On Facebook recently, I already talked about the Photo Call I did recently for Sony Ericsson which went out in the Evening Herald and The Metro Newspapers.  I thought I would just share a little video. It is just an experiment really, thinking about getting into doing some videos for the blog in the future, so watch this space…

The models are: Vinny Gough, Eva Grasse and Georgia Salpa

Behind the Scenes: Charity Bodypainting

By | Behind the Scene, Bodypainting, Uncatagorized | One Comment

I was asked to do a high profile quiz event in Clontarf Castle last Thursday.  The event was in aid of the charity “To Russia With Love” to raise much needed funds.

Here are some behind the scenes photographs, some professional shots will follow soon. The model was David Mulqueen a personal trainer/director from The Edge Clontarf, a personal training facility based in Clontarf. I am no expert, but I think he might be good at his job if his abs are anything to go by.

Make-Up for Doritos Video

By | Behind the Scene, Bodypainting, Film and Television, Uncatagorized | No Comments

Last week I was asked to do some Bodypainting for a Doritos Advert Competition Entry. This involved bodypainting three actors in the colours of Doritos Cheese, Cool Ranch and Chilli Heatwave. As luck would have it I was able to get the exact colour match from Make-Up Forever on Clarendon Street. I used their Color Creams in Orange, Pearly Blue and Cold Red.

I love it when I don’t have to custom blend a colour, because this makes for a much quicker process and bodypaint.

Bodypainting for film is alot more complicated than for still photography. I came up against a number of challenges. I wanted to paint them with a product that would be easy enough to remove, but would last under the lights and for the duration of the shoot. I opted for the color cream because it is really easy to apply, non toxic, easy to remove and gives good coverage.

I had to be on hand to repair any spots that had faded from sweat or friction against the clothes.

All in all I was really pleased with the finished make up and I gave the director exactly what was in the brief.

Bodypainting Photoshoot: Silver Metal

This is a photoshoot which was supposed to be entitled broken down mechanics…I did the bodypaint as planned, but ended up getting carried away with some colours afterwards. In the end these photographs ended up looking even better than the planned shoot. This is what I love about creativity, there are no rules and sometimes the best things happen by accident.

Bodypainting Photoshoot – Nature the gentlest Mother

Nature, the gentlest mother,
Impatient of no child,
The feeblest or the waywardest,
Her admonition mild
In forest and the hill
By traveller is heard,
Restraining rampant squirrel
Or too impetuous bird.
How fair her conversation,
A summer afternoon,–
Her household, her assembly;
And when the sun goes down
Her voice among the aisles
Incites the timid prayer
Of the minutest cricket,
The most unworthy flower.
When all the children sleep
She turns as long away
As will suffice to light her lamps;
Then, bending from the sky
With infinite affection
And infiniter care,
Her golden finger on her lip,
Wills silence everywhere
-Emily Dickenson
